Russia has announced that any military action against Syria will be a 'war crime', Sputnik reported on Wednesday.
Responding to comments made by US president Donal Trump about imminent smart missile attack against the Syrian regime, Russia said that missiles must target terrorist, not the legitimate regime.
"Smart missiles must strike terrorists, not the legitimate government that has been fighting international terrorism on its territory for several years," Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova took to Facebook to respond to Donald Trump's latest tweets on a possible military strike on Syria.
Trump has told Vladimir Putin to "get ready" warning that US "new and smart" missiles are heading to Syria after Russia insisted it would shoot down American missiles.
Trump's announcement comes as a response to Russia's first deputy chairman of the Russian upper house's Defense Committee, Yevgeny Serebrennikov comments in which he said that Russia will respond immediately if its military in Syria gets hit by a possible US airstrike.
